Bugger Saltman!!!

Had very similar conditions/surf. 2ft/2ft+ with the odd set close to 3 ft. Clean A frames and we had it to ourselves til 7:30am when the zoo turned up.

Only other downer was the sweep heading south and shorewards meant you copped a few of the set a frame on the head!!!

Head high point surf with clear warm water on a sunny day with no-one in the water. Can't pretend this isn't happening. According to "Ballina Shark Reports" on FB,...
